• LGBT Agenda is Setting the Tone!

    David Cilia

    I would have preferred the editorial team of zuntier.com to choose a less controversial theme for the first month of the year.   Nonetheless, this would probably be an issue in the upcoming general elections and so it is likely to be discussed in the public square very soon. From the ...

  • Is Hannukka the Jewish “Christmas”?

    Sophia

    The Hebrew word ‘Hanukkah’ literally means ‘dedication’ and its story takes us back to the events of the 2nd century BCE as described in the deuterocanonical books of 1 and 2 Maccabees. The eight-day festival begins on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, which normally falls somewhere ...

  • James Bond and Vatican Council II

    Sinclair Bugeja

    It seems coincidental, or maybe providential, that the year 2012 shall be marked with the golden anniversary of two apparently disjointed events: the release of the first James Bond movie and the opening of the Second Vatican Council. Both had lasting effects on the areas to which they pertain yet ...

  • If Secularists are so Rational, why am I not one?

    David Cilia

    Secularism, as a movement, has its own core beliefs and they are clearly spelled out in humanist and secularist websites.  The movement claims that is suffices to organize society around rational and free thinking, and that religions should not enjoy any special privilege and should not interfere in the building ...
